I have been working at International Data Group full-time (more than 10 years)Neutral OutlookApproves of CEONeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
International Data Group (IDG) has a unique culture that was established by the founder, Patrick McGovern. There has been drastic changes in the last few years since the company's former CEO Bob Carrigan left and its founder, Patrick McGovern, passed away. For those that have been there for a while (it's not uncommon to work with colleagues that have been at IDG for 20+ years), these changes have been tough. For new employees that don't have the emotional connection to the company, this is an exciting opportunity to be a part of company going through transformation.
